You will have noticed the paucity of postings and articles on this site (Last article was May 1st) this year. To cut to the chase, because of grumblings from the FDA in the U.S. vis-a-vis Young Living, there are strict limitations on what we can say about different essential oils. We cannot discuss which oils are beneficial to any given ailment or medical condition. According to Young Living, we are to focus on essential oils supporting good health and wellbeing, rather than sickness.
At present Young Living are in the process of laying out what can be said with respect to each of their products, so that they remain compliant with FDA guidelines. To make things even more complicated (from a blogger and distributor’s perspective), each market (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, etc) will have somewhat different guidelines. For example, Young Living have a number of oils that are classified as dietary supplements. In Australia YL essential oils are generally classified as fragrances, not dietary supplements. See what I mean?
As we’ve always used Young Living essential oils (and want to continue using them)we intend to honour Young Living’s request of its distributors. Unfortunately it means that until we get some more clarity on what we can tell you about these amazing oils, I’m not going to be posting too much information on essential oils. It’s just too complicated and risky at the moment. This also means we cannot field any kind of questions re: what oils to use for specific conditions.
I will be putting up at the earliest convenience, a list of reading materials you can go to and do your own research.
Hopefully we will be able to resume writing about the essential oils again in the near future.
